Project Report | Dec 14, 2020
Meet Tumisang!

By Mehdeen Sehgal | Associate Director, Marketing and Development

Having access to technology means our students can access education and resources they need to become competetive in the job market.

Tumisang is a 17-year-old grade 11 Maths and Sciences studetnt at Mphethi Mahlatsi Secondary School. As part of Afrika Tikkun's career development focus in October, Tumisang engaged the Gradesmatch website, which aligns learners with their ideal careers based on their academic performance. Gradesmatch also assists learners in choosing higher education institutions.

Tumisang would love to study Actuarial Science or Law at the University of Witwatersrand or the University of Cape Town. He's drawn to Actuarial Science is because he strongly believes black representation in the industry is still very low, something he sees this as an opportunity. On the other hand, Tumisang's interest in law stems from his consistently good performance in history. He also loves critical thinking, public speaking and debating.

At Afrika Tikkun's Arekopaneng Centre in Alexandra, Tumisang's participation in activities like Spelling Bee, and Quiz and Debate and has helped build his confidence, developed his critical thinking skills, sharpened his public speaking and oral presentation skills and forced him to be more solution-oriented.

While he was grateful for the insight presented by Gradesmatch, Tumisang was disappointed when Afrika Tikkun couldn't host the annual Career Day because of the national lockdown. "I believe learners should be motivated about subject choices in grade 9 and more of them should pursue maths and science because it helps in problem solving,'' Tumisang stated.

Thank you for your investment in the future of our young people! Your donation is helping many young people like Tumisang to access online learning and quality education.
